That's very kind of you to offer, Mandojammer, and I'm sorely tempted to take you up on it.

However, I'd have to arrive by air, and it would be pretty challenging to bring all the stuff I'd need to camp comfortably (chairs, coolers, sleeping bags, air mattress, etc.) with me on the plane.

Maybe I'll get on couchsurfing.org and see if there are any couchsurfers in the area . . .

Listening to Max Creek at the moment & enjoying!

DD - it's almost as if they anticipated your dilemma.

Show Sherpa is working FloydFest this year.

All you have to do is show up and they have all your gear ready to go.

So now how tempting is it?

Sam Bush, Del McCoury, David Grisman, Tony Rice, Taj Mahal, Yonder Mountain, New Monsoon, Carolina Chocolate Drops, Grace Potter, Railroad Earth, Donna The Buffalo.....

You get the point.

Thanks again for the offer, Mandojammer, but it looks like FloydFest just isn't in the cards for me this year.

Hope you have great weather & a great time!

HOLY @#$%!!!! LOL

Now why didn't I think of that?!?!?

What a GREAT idea!!

I've got a poker tournament that starts in 30 minutes that I've got to get to; afterwards I've got some serious thinkin' to do.

Much thanks for the info Mandojammer!!

DD - I just checked the site and they are sold out of FloydFest packages.

Despair not.....

I have 6 tents, 4 backpacks, 3 sleeping bags, 1 hammock, 3 coolers, 1 stove, a canopy, one lantern and 6 camps chairs.

I am taking 1 tent, 1 backpack, 1 sleeping bag, one cooler, one lantern, the hammock, the canopy and two camp chairs.

Do I need to throw more in the back of the truck and should we talk more?
